Well known for her appearances on the BBC’s Springwatch, Lucy Cooke is an award-winning TV presenter and producer, New York Times best-selling author and TED talker, with a Masters in zoology from New College Oxford, where she studied evolution and animal behaviour under Richard Dawkins. She has written, produced and presented natural history programmes for BBC, PBS, Animal Planet and National Geographic Wild (‘Freaks and Creeps’). Her ‘Meet the Sloths’ documentary (Animal Planet) won the coveted Panda popular documentary award and went on to become a major international series for Discovery International.
Lucy will be talking about her latest book, BITCH: A REVOLUTIONARY GUIDE TO SEX, EVOLUTION AND THE FEMALE ANIMAL, in which she introduces the animals and scientists who are reinventing the female of the species. This critically acclaimed best-seller will change how you think about sex, sexual identity and sexuality in all animals, including us. One of the Telegraph’s top 50 books of 2022, BITCH was adapted into the BBC Radio 4 series Political Animals and is now on the syllabus at UCL, Princeton and other major international universities.
